2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships
|Venue||London, Great Britain|
|Velodrome||Lee Valley VeloPark|
As the last major track cycling event prior to the 2016 Summer Olympics, the championships were particularly important for cyclists and national teams aiming to qualify for the track cycling competitions at Rio 2016. Hosts Great Britain finished top of the medals table with five gold, one silver and three bronze medals.
Tickets prices for the 12 different sessions ranged between £15 and £90, with student and over 60s discounts available. Higher priced tickets were tickets with better seating locations, afternoon (final) sessions and the sessions at the weekend. On 20 February 50,000 tickets were sold, with most of the sessions sold out.
For the championships 200 volunteers were recruited and helped in a variety of roles during set-up and across the event, from programme sellers and accreditation distributors to media and sports.
The schedule of events was as follows:
Q = qualifiers, R1 = first round, R2 = second round, R = repechages 1/16 = sixteenth finals, 1/8 = eighth finals, QF = quarterfinals, SF = semifinals
SR = Scratch Race, IP = Individual Pursuit, ER = Elimination Race, TT = Time Trial, FL = Flying Lap, PR = Points Race
